In the first new Herbie Jones story since Herbie Jones and the Birthday Showdown, Herbie has a serious problem: His best friend Raymond is moving to Texas. Herbie and Ray try to stop the move by making a mess when people come to buy Ray's house. But after a talk with Grandpa Jones, Herbie realizes that instead of fighting the move, they should  celebrate with a big class party. Herbie and his classmates make Ray a special cake and a homemade card and try to act happy for him. But Ray has a surprise up his sleeve-a surprise that might really make them happy!
